In 2013, Rüzgâr sets out to make a documentary about a close friend Şevval, a trans LGBT activist. The timing of the documentary coincides with a transformational moment in Istanbul during the 2013 Gezi Park protests and the subsequent Pride march. The documentary shifts focus and we travel the streets meeting many activists instead of one, and get a sense of LGBTI activists’ contribution to the protests; we feel their exuberance, their hopes, and share their sense of humor. #resistayol is a fresh, exuberant documentary that reminds us of the many lively colors of human living.
